What Will Attract Winged Visitors Faster, a Wild Bird Feeder or a Bird Bath?

The answer may surprise you. A bird bath will attract birds easier and faster than a bird feeder?

Plus if you add movement to the water your feathered friends will not be able to resist your invitation. Wild birds like many of their admirers love the sound of water.

And a bird bath will draw birds who normally would not be attracted to a feeder, like Warblers for instance.

Why Is One Baby Bird Raised in a Bird Nest & Others in a Bird House?

Wild birds raise their young in a fashion that is suited to their particular species' preferences and their environment.

Bird houses are another avenue to attract birds for close-up viewing. It is a wonderful experience to watch adult birds care for and raise their young.

Some species like Chickadees, Nuthatches and the Woodpecker family are cavity nesters. They are the ones who will have a look at a bird house you have erected to size-it-up for suitability.

But Finches and many types of Sparrows build their nests on the crooks of tree branches or in bushes.

Turkey Vultures choose a spot on the ground that has the criteria they like and lay their eggs there without even carrying a blade of grass.

And some birds such as Cowbirds lay their eggs in another species carefully constructed nest and let those parents raise and care for their young for them.

There are many different places birds choose to build their homes and just as many different styles of nests that birds construct. But their purpose is the same, to raise their young safely and successfully to adulthood.

But sorting through it all can be a daunting task!

And because I was asked so many times, "Who should I buy from...?", "What should I buy...?", " “Where can I buy…?”, I have added products that I sell from this site with reviews, recommendations and ratings.

I have chosen the best bird feeders to the best birding binoculars available on the market, but not the most expensive.

If I wouldn't buy it, I won't sell it. And if I have bought and used it I will give you my honest opinion. But I don't like wasting my money so I won't buy unless I am fairly certain it will do what I want it to.

I have given each product a gold star rating from 1 to 5.

Watching Winged Wonders Fills Your Life With Joy!

Each product points to pages with great customer reviews which give you the very best indicator of a products worth, the experience of the people using them.

Product reviews are a great help when it comes time to purchase your bird watching equipment.

There are many outstanding manufacturers and distributors in the birding industry such as Duncraft, Achla, Allied Precision, Brome Bird Care, Droll Yankee, Aspects Feeders, Heritage Farms, Homestead, Perky Pet, Songbird Essentials, Woodlink "Audubon Series", Farm Innovators and many more.

You may not be aware that the Cornell Lab of Ornithology also produces fine birding equipment. 

I'll pass on what I learned from decades of feeding birds and owning a wildlife nature store.

I'll share my experiences selling great products and what customers told me about them.

The list of exhilarating moments can go on and on. Songbirds at your bird feeders are awesome, but be careful!

But, “Why be careful?” you ask?

All bird supplies, including bird feeders and houses should come with the warning:

“Bird feeding can be addictive!”

Of course it’s not an “addiction” in the negative, destructive sense. It is a healthy, cherished and positive hobby, watching and learning about birds.

A pastime that enhances your life in so many ways. That has certainly been my experience. One that I am now eagerly sharing with you.
